Virtualization and cloud administrators who install, configure and manage vSphere installations

Prerequisite
None

Expected Duration
136 minutes

Description
Virtualized environments have unique requirements for storage and movement of data. The unit of virtualization is the VM, which essentially runs the instance of a computer on a software-defined hardware. This course covers storage management for a VMware vSphere 6 environment. It also covers virtual machine creation and management, and best practices for VMs in a vSphere 6 environment.
